    Local Session Manager Service - Excessive Handle Count?

    Hey all,

    I know that when a process is using a lot of handles, that means it's
    consuming a lot of resources. So I'm pretty surprised that lsm.exe
    (Local Session Manager Service) consumes between 15,000 and 30,000
    handles on my machine! In XP, I usually have 15,000 handles open on a
    system with lots of applications open. Why would lsm.exe be using so
    many handles? Is this possibly a concern?
